Levels of Ca2+-Dipicolinic Acid in Individual Bacillus Spores Determined Using Microfluidic Raman Tweezers 2011 72266 Pyridine-2 6-dicarboxylic acid (dipicolinic acid [DPA]) in a 1:1 chelate with calcium ion (Ca-DPA) comprises 5 to 15% of the dry weight of spores of Bacillus species. Ca-DPA is important in spore resistance to many environmental stresses and in spore...
Role of Dipicolinic Acid in the Germination Stability and Viability of Spores of Bacillus subtilis 2011 72266 Spores of Bacillus subtilis spoVF strains that cannot synthesize dipicolinic acid (DPA) but take it up during sporulation were prepared in medium with various DPA concentrations and the germination and viability of these spores as well as the DPA con...
Superdormant Spores of Bacillus Species Have Elevated Wet-Heat Resistance and Temperature Requirements for Heat Activation 2011 72266 Purified superdormant spores of Bacillus cereus B. megaterium and B. subtilis isolated after optimal heat activation of dormant spores and subsequent germination with inosine D-glucose or L-valine respectively germinate very poorly with the original ...
